I can use ombr or variegated yarn to make the squares and that makes me happy. That will add an ease of completion and a rich texture to the look. I think the finished project is beautiful! I love the roses and the mauves mixed in with the taupes and that really light lilac.

I cannot seem to find the pattern. It says it moved on the site and to search for it but it doesn't come up when you try to search it either.

Cannot get the instructions. When I click on the search to get the, I am taken to a site that wants me to sign up for free patterns once a week. I do not want to sign up for free patterns once a week

You just have to scroll way down and the instructions are there as well as a link to a video for the joining method. :)

I click on the "Click here for pattern" link and it sends me to another site that doesn't even have the pattern. Not Cool. I HATE sites that just link to other sites, it's lame and deceitful.

It seems impossible to save a copy of this pattern. What's up?

I copy the directions into a word document and print it.

Simply log in with your email address and password and go to"save the pattern" then just click on that.

I went to knitting warehouse and all it was was a page of sponsored sites for me to visit, like ebay, amazon... I don't understand how tis is a savings per skein. I didn't even find Bernat yarn mentioned... ???

I just got my Mosaic yarn today and tried this pattern. I could not follow the written instructions, too confusing for Rnds 3 and 4. So I watched the video and was able to get going on it. The video shows four rounds and the written instructions have five. Also, it is noted at the bottom of the written pattern that the picture above is of a traditional granny square. The video is for a round center, squared off with the granny square pattern. I didn't notice that note at first. The colors of the Mosaic yarn are beautiful, bit it feels "hard" like cotton, but it's 100% acrylic. I thought I got some a few years back that was more of a mohair feel. Has the fiber been changed or did I get a different brand before? I love that you can make the granny squares that look like you are changing colors, but your not! Not so many ends to weave in!

Have to disagree with Colorado Gramma...this is beautiful, the colors are absolutely breathtaking. I love Bernat Mosaic yarns. They mix colors that I would not have thought to put together and everytime, they are right. If you don't like this one, check out their other colors. And check out knitting warehouse for great discounted prices on this yarn. LOVE IT!!!!!

its kind of blah, ugly, I have been crocheting for 52 years now and this is by far the worse of an granny afghan I have ever seen. I made one back in 1996 for my husband when he went to korea and it is still used on our bed in the winter time... it is that heavy!

I like the way all the colors are the same heathered tone. Not real bright like the one on the old "Roseanne show"

It's a truly beautiful afghan. However, quite expensive to make. At Bernats, Mosaic sells for about $6.49 each ball, and this requires at least 14 balls or about $90 plus. Maybe this is not 'expensive' for some, but to me, it's way out of my pocket book. sure is lovely!

Hey noofbutton...I agree the yarn is expensive...I found a site ...go to "knitting" their price is much cheaper. Hope this helps. It saves me $2.00 a ball. Have fun.

nice colors

there was a note that said how to smooth your hooks..but I couldn't find that tip

just lovely
